A very good article by Karl Denninger. I couldn't have said it better myself, it is a must read:

What The Media *Didn't* Cover -

Let's talk about what's really going on. 

First, our rates.  The EFF (Effective Fed Funds) rate has been trading at 1.5% now for a couple of weeks.  Two percent schmoo percent; a target rate only in name is no target at all.  In reality the 50 bips cut, even though it resulted in an instantaneous 40 handle rocket shot in the /ES futures Wednesday morning, was entirely a CONfidence game (with the emphasis on "Con"!)

The RTS (Russian Market) is down 87% YTD, and is closed until further notice.  The Nikkei is trading below the DOW - that's not good.  Indonesia's stock market was shuttered Wednesday and remains closed after tripping "lock limits" within 90 minutes of the opening bell.  As of Thursday morning the RTS was closed again after Putin allegedly strong-armed a whole bunch of Russian wealthy to "stick it in" (to the stock market); this sort of v-fib in a market does horrifyingly bad things to ordinary investors who find themselves out just before the market rockets higher without underlying economic cause.

Iceland has essentially melted down.  Their currency went straight into the toilet and two of the three largest banks were nationalized - all in the space of 24 hours.  The culprit?  Bad loans.  Where have we seen this movie before?

Mexico's peso has fallen some 40% in days against the dollar.  Great if you're traveling there as an American.  Sucks severely if you're a Mexican.  That alleged fence on our southern border is going to need reinforcements.

Wednesday morning Britain and the EU zone all announced major bank rescue operations.  Same deal - "throw money at it, paper it over." 

Nowhere a mention of forcing balance sheet transparency and truth.

That rabbit hole is how we got the 1930s, and it is the danger we now face.  Congress was in fact conned by Treasury, George W. Bush and the banking industry (including Ben Bernanke), who instead of forcing the malefactors into the open and exposing those who were bankrupt (or just plain corrupt - notice the common stem on both words?) threw them a line - unfortunately, the line is cleated to the entire economy of the United States, and they have enough negative buoyancy to drag us all under the waves.

And in the meantime and in between time, the US government is apparently effusing with desperation...

The U.S. is weighing two dramatic steps to repair ailing financial markets: guaranteeing billions of dollars in bank debt and temporarily insuring all U.S. bank deposits.

 

If the two moves come to fruition they would mark the government's most extensive intervention yet in the financial system, as officials ponder increasingly far-reaching measures to stem the sprawling crisis.
